. >> reporter: that's right. mayor michael bloomberg had criticized president obama in the past, said he was not going to endorse, today, he said he's endorsing the president because he believes he's best positioned to lead on the issue of climate change, which the mayor believes had an impact on this hurricane. that comes on top of that praise from governor chris christie, the republican governor of new jersey yesterday and the poll you cited shows that nearly 8 out of 10 americans think the president has done a good job handling this hurricane. >> what about the voters who are worried they're not going to be able to vote because of this storm? >> reporter: action is being taken already. governor christie of new jersey has said that absentee ballot deadline will be extended. offices opened longer and they are going to get department of defense trucks to go to neighbors so people can vote at the trucks if their polling place is closed. >> okay, george, reporting in. and we'll be kcovering it all te way through. thank you, george. >>> coming up, the storm danger in your backyard. trees cr

, because we've just learned that even mayor bloomberg has somewhat endorsed president obama, and as you just mentioned, i mean we've seen sort of a bromance, right, between governor christie, who has been such a supporter of romney, and now barack obama, i mean, he has been effusive in his praise of the president. what is your sense as to what effect that may have on this election? >> mitt romney has been trying for the longest time to be a bipartisan, even post-partisan leader, and mitt romney is now seeing barack obama play that role in real life. chris christie to go out of his way to praise him and mayor bloomberg's endorsement. mayor bloomberg epitomizes the idea of someone beyond party labels so for him to come off the sidelines now and cite president obama on his position on climate change and endorsing his candidacy, i don't think there are a lot of swing voters waiting around to see where the mayor of new york comes down on the race but reinforces the concept of president obama as someone who is able to cross party lines and get things down and be forward looking in terms of hi
